Anderson Cooper recently interviewed Mitch Winehouse about his daughters (Amy Winehouse) death and in the interview to air Monday on the new talk show Anderson he tells Cooper that his daughter may have died from a detox seizure and “there was nobody there to rescue her.”
Mitch made his statement after it was discovered that no illegal drugs were in Winehouse’s body at the time of her death, although an “undetermined” amount of alcohol was found in her blood stream.
Mitch tells Anderson Cooper:
“Everything Amy did, she did to excess. She drank to excess and did detox to excess,” while he went on to add, “periods of abstinence were becoming longer, and the periods of drinking were becoming shorter. It was heading in the right direction.”
He added that Amy had suffered from seizures in the past that would cause her to pass out, although he says until he knows for sure he’ll be waiting for an inquest to be completed in October.
Mitch said of his daughters life with and without drugs:
“When she wasn’t drinking, she was absolutely on top of the world.
Tune in to the new Anderson Cooper talk show on Monday to find out more about Amy Winehouse from her family members who until this time have been relatively silent about Amy’s passing.
